Yateley Silverbacks Basketball Club - SPONSORSHIP

Can you help the Yateley Silverbacks Basketball Club?                      

The Yateley Silverbacks Basketball Club is a deep and broad community based club that develops Men, Women and Youth players and it is looking for your sponsorship! Over the last 2 years over 2000 people have been to watch Silverbacks home matches.

Club founder Pete Daines, a Sports teacher at Yateley Manor and current England U16 Team Manager, is a former National League player and a current EBA registered referee and coach. Pete is also National co-ordinator for Prep Schools Basketball. ‘Yateley is an ideal place for our basketball club. There is a wealth of local talent and an underserved local sporting community. We are very excited about the challenge of expanding the club’

The Silverbacks have been in action for 4 years. In that time they have won two promotions, a League title and a Play-off Championship. The club has expanded to have two men’s teams and a ladies team.

Yateley Silverbacks offers excellent promotional opportunities for local businesses.

The Yateley Silverbacks need sponsorship to purchase kit/equipment, player registration and insurance, pay for court hire and cover refereeing fees. It costs in the region of £8000 to run the club per year so any financial help would be greatly appreciated. In the past sponsorship has ranged from companies donating a few hundred pounds to others who have given much larger sums. This is an exciting time and your business will benefit from your commitment. Yateley Silverbacks would love you to join them on their journey.

Please contact Pete Daines to discuss how you can support the Yateley Silverbacks.
